Not for nothing but it's comical how much people complain that Tedenby never gets a chance when he's had 100 NHL games and almost as many AHL games with the Devils, with his career NHL highs being 8 goals and 22 points, while Butler's had a 10-goal half season in the NHL, is the leading scorer for the AHL team and nobody seems to mind he doesn't even get 'one' shot with the Devils.

Funny how we scream and yell about our homegrown guy, after he has gotten chance after chance, but it's okay that someone else's guy doesn't even get one chance with us.

Boston, ironically. Wish he'd get a contract.

Come on now, that's cold lol. Love Jacques but boy did he botch the handling of that one, especially considering it was the end of Pando's tenure as a Devil for all intents and purposes too. At least call him in the office and tell him to turn in the playbook instead of having an assistant text-benching him

Devils rushed Tedenby. I don't want to see them do that for Butler.

Rushed? Butler's 25 and will be 26 before the end of the season. That's more like a slow baby crawl.

That $2.5 million dollar paycheck should allow Pando to wipe the tears from his eyes with $100 bills.

I'd rather him play in the AHL and get his confidence up. If he didn't make the team out of training camp, there had to be something in his play they didn't like. Why not let him work on whatever it is in the AHL?

Lou said Butler was not ready, I think its the system frankly i dont think Bulter knows the system well enough to put him on the NHL ice right this moment and thats why he isnt in the NHL. Tedenby played the last 2 season under our system and MIGHT know it better then Butler does. Butler will get his chance once they feel he is ready.

Maybe Lou is breaking all the bad habits Butler got from before he arrived in NJ.

Even if he's making $10 million, that's still no way to treat a guy on his way out who never gave us any problems, was a good Devil and a valuable foot soldier for many years.

I don't agree with the way he was handled, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't happy when he left. He was painful to watch as soon as he got that contract. The last 2 years with us. Even Sutter healthy scratched him a bunch, and I wondered why he trusted him so much to give him so much ice time against Carolina in the playoffs.

Not sure why we called up Anderson of all people, but whatever. He's going to be on the fourth line, probably won't make much of a difference either way.

If Larsson isn't going to play, I'd be happier to see him getting game time in Albany.

Butler didn't get called up because the team is giving Matteau another shot in the top 6.

BUTLER IS USELESS ON THE 4th line. He really is a American Tedenby with a better shot and slightly better hockey sense.

Anderson can play the 4th line role perfectly. Butler would of been a waste and got rocked over and over by Boston's fourth.

Matteau is likely to be sent down after tonight anyway. He's looked ok but I really think it would be a mistake to keep him up.

Agreed. I just hope we don't hear the ''Time is on your side use it'' line in response to him staying up.

Clarkson is a Bruins killer.

He has like 4 g in the last 5 games against the Bruins.

Since we don't have a top six winger anyway maybe we should bring back Viktor Kozlov for shootouts Hell, Brian Gionta used to be really good at them, maybe we should have tried Stephen tonight, see if he picked up any tips.

I don't like our first line revolving door. The constant square peg round hole approach has really shut down 2 of our best offensive players.

The Gio-Bernier-Carter was a great 4th line, but as a third line they don't look the same. You need a hard worker to play with Zajac-Kovy, they aren't getting any possession time. I wouldn't mind seeeing Gio play with them until Henrique returns and solidifies our top 6.

After that we can focus on our Fugly defense.

Oh lord I can't wait until Henrique gets back. Got to love Clarkson right now. He never looks pretty doing it, but he has been money.
